This would only make me retreat even more. I didn't want to give in to this handicap. I wanted to grow and be all that God wanted me to be.

Killing Jesus for Profit

The very Son of God, sent by His almighty Father, surrenders His divine capacity to assume human form, all to endure a horrific death that opens to the way for all of humanity to be given the gift of eternal life. And all the while, this same Son of God leads a perfect, sin-free life, confirming and magnifying the scriptures of what we know as the Old Testament, leaving us an example and standard for our own personal lives, wherever we are and wherever we came from.

Sounds like heady stuff? It is. It’s humbling. It’s life-changing. It’s inspiring.

A random thought expressed by someone else can sometimes stick in your mind, creating a well-placed image that sums up a life. A colleague was trying to explain the essence of why those of us who work in our corner of God’s field are still showing up and punching the clock. “We’re still here,” he said. I think most others in the room, including he who spoke, did not pay it much mind. I did.

Recently my friend Jenny lost her cat, Moe, after six years. I could tell the loss was great as she shared memories of her beloved cat. It reminded me of when we lost our family dog, Jo Jo. He had been a part of our family for over 10 years.

I once had a supervisor I did not get along with. I tried to transfer out of his department but never could. I wound up working for him quite a bit longer than I intended. In the end I came to respect him. It was then I got a new supervisor.

A while back, after ISIS executed a Jordanian pilot, I read that Jordan's King Abdullah II immediately dropped what he was doing to head back to his home in Jordan. He promised to deal swiftly with those who did such a horrendous thing to one of his men.
